If you go to the entry requirements section for a university you wish to apply for it will say what they are interested in (and what may be compulsory). Maths is important if you want to study physics at university but it depends on the university you apply for.

What crazyy said. However, I'd pretty much say core maths is required for most physics courses mainly for the vector algebra, logarithms, basic trigonometry and calculus. All of which are likely to come up in your course.

Projectile motion, statics/dynamics and impulse/momentum are all fields in mechanics which are also likely to come up in your course.

I recommend learning both mechanics and core maths if possible.
